A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

A square [based] pyramid.

How many faces and edges does a pyramid?

In math terms, a pyramid could have a square base, triangular base or another shape. The Egyptian pyramids (and Aztec ones) had a square base. So they had 8 edges (for on the base and 4 rising to the top) and 5 faces (4 facing up and the base).

What geometric shape has 1 square face and 4 triangular faces?

The geometric shape that has 1 square face and 4 triangular faces is a pyramid. A pyramid also has five vertices and eight edges. The square acts as the base for the shape on which it sits.

What shape has 8 edges 5 faces and 5 vertices's?

square based Pyramid * * * * * It does not have to be square based. Any quadrilateral base will do.

What shape has 5 faces 8 edges and 8 vertices?

This describes a square pyramid. It has a square for a base, and four triangular sides that meet at the "top" or upper vertex. It will then have 5 faces, which will be the 4 triangular sides and the square base. It will also have 8 edges and 8 vertices. Use the link below to see a drawing and you can count all the faces, edges and vertices.

How many faces and edges does a square pyramid have?

A square pyramid, or square-based pyramid, has 5 faces and 8 edges. One face forms the square base, and there are four triangular faces.

What is a square based pyramd?

A square based pyramid is a three dimensional shape with a square base, and four triangles (one from each side of the base) that meet at a point above the base. The shape has 5 vertices, 5 faces and 8 edges.

How many faces in a pyramid?

If a pyramid has a square base then it will have 5 faces. Always look at the number of edges at the base so is the base is square which has four edges then it will have four faces plus a base. This means 5 faces. This rule works in almost all 3D objects.

rectangular/square pyramid * * * * * Or one with any other quadrilateral as base.
